A consortium consisting of Wärtsilä and an Indonesian construction company PT PP (Persero) Tbk has been selected to supply a 135 MW Flexicycle (combined cycle) power plant to PT PLN, the Indonesian state utility. The consortium will deliver a full EPC (Engineering, Procurement & Construction) project. In addition to the EPC contract, the consortium will also operate and maintain the power plant for a 5-year period.
The project includes 13 Wärtsilä 34DF engines that can operate on multiple fuels, including liquid fuels and natural gas. The project is included in Wärtsilä’s order book in the fourth quarter of 2016.
The 135 MW Flexicycle power plant will be built in Lombok Island in Indonesia. Lombok Island is located east of Bali and is home to more than 3 million inhabitants. When operational this will be the first engine based combined cycle power plant in the country.
Wärtsilä and PT PLN have long and healthy relationship. The two parties recently signed a MoU to build power generation in Indonesia. When the Lombok plant is operational Wärtsilä’s installed capacity in Indonesia will exceed 3.1 GW.
